I've been catching up on a few Block of the Month projects over the past week. (I think having the Olympics on has been a nice motivation/excuse to catch up on some sewing.) This block is Block 2 in the 2014 Auriful Block of the Month. This quilt is designed by Amy Gibson of Stitchery Dickory Dock.
Lots of cute little half-square-triangles. You can read more about Amy and her inspiration for this block on the Aurifil blog. Amy is as sweet in real life as she sounds.pattern for Block #1 (right) here and Block #2 (left) here. They are both 12" finished blocks.
A couple of blocks for Carrie from the Bee's Knees. For January, Carrie requested two different 12" half-square-triangle blocks from each member. Each block came from Camille Roskelly's Craftsy video 25 Half Square Triangle Blocks. If you haven't seen it, there's a lot of great HST block inspiration.the Virtual Quilting Bee. Because of some scheduling conflicts, we are going to move the official VQB party back one week to Monday, March 3! (Who couldn't use an extra week, right?) If you've created something using any of the VQB blocks, you can link up a picture of your creation. (Hint: There will be prizes!) Even if you didn't make anything, I'm sure there will be lots of pretty inspiration.
And finally, because I am an Olympics junkie, I just have to comment on how much I am loving all the quilt inspiration in the official Sochi motif! SO cool.
Not to mention the Norwegian Curling Team uniforms. (Lol!) Endless inspiration... (the Mondrian pants!)
I LOVE having the Olympics to watch while I'm sewing or cleaning or doing whatever. So many sweet inspiring moments for these athletes who put their heart and soul into something the rest of us only care about once every four years. This ad with Noelle Pikus-Pace is my favorite (partly because I recognize a lot of that scenery as she lives 30 minutes away.) Also this sweet moment with the women snowboarders. Love it.
Happy Valentine's Day!
